Dear Grapeview parents and Community:
Happy Spring to you all! This is the time of year I really find enjoyable. All the flowers are starting to pop out and even bloom, the weather is warm enough that I can get some bicycling in, and there just seems to be a warm, positive note to the air!
I wanted to share with you what a terrific year it has been to date. There has been some amazing instruction and some serious learning that has been going on this school year. Our staff has doubled-down on their dedication and commitment to our students, and every single student has the whole school behind him/her, and at least one adult who could be said to be paying especially close attention to that student. In a small school, such as ours, we can do that! That’s the great thing about a small school.
From musicals to holiday concerts, to art on display and performance on the athletic field and court, our students are offered a wide, comprehensive educational experience. It is a good thing, to be a Grapeview School kid!
I want to share with you that I will not be returning in the Fall as your Superintendent. Life has a way of opening doors and leading one down different paths at different times. I will be pursuing other adventures and writing new chapters in my life story. This has been an incredible experience for me, and I will miss the staff and students very much. I have been honored and sincerely appreciative to be serving this school and especially its students, and I wish you all the very best for the future!
I will continue to work until the end of June.
The School Board is currently engaged in the search for a new Superintendent for Grapeview, and you can be assured that they will be looking for a quality educator with a deep commitment to young people and the staff that serves them. Our Grapeview School motto of “Working to Engage and Inspire!” will continue to be the focus.
Thank you for the privilege of working with your children and serving the Grapeview School District. It has been a deep and sincere honor.
